See one of the main features of the renowned event at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall. The ornate festival floats pass through the city during the festival, in line with a tradition begun around 350 years ago. With the festival taking place twice yearly, the floats get displayed when not in use in this large hall. Walk between the carefully crafted floats, admiring the subtle differences in design between each of these 17th-century treasures. A short video explains the roots and traditions of the festival, helping to contextualize the respect and reverence with which each of the floats is treated.

  • This is a really great window into the yearly festival and gives a lot of historical information. Also very well laid out and the exhibits themselves are spectacular.

  • Lovely storage/museum for the Takayama Festival Floats. Some as really massive, weighing tons each, with amazing detailing. Not all the floats are on display at one time as they're on rotation. Multi-language voice guide is available at the entrance. No-flash photography is allowed.
  • Can be seen from various angles from above from the ground Festival. I think there isn't much opportunity to see various techniques, decorated stalls also said that Crystal's wide variety of Hida's Takayama Festival day town crowded with people, so carefully. Please see visit the users interested in handicrafts.

  • I think admission feels a bit higher, at no loss. But like was a gimmick performers in the old days.

  • No other tourists went to the lunch time on weekdays. Would recommend politely thanks for explaining Takayama Festival and food stalls, which may be felt. Exhibition and stalls with the fall Takayama Festival-Festival Hall, was not a glamorous festival landscape.
